How It Works

  • The writing challenge will take place in a private Facebook group.
  • Over the course of the weekend, you'll get access to the writing prompts.
  • Choose your prompt, and write in any genre you like -- memoir, fiction, or poetry, etc.
  • To make it fun and easy to participate, though, it's recommended you set your timer to five minutes, write, and then post your response in the group, in the thread created for your writing.
  • Your response can be as long as you like, but pieces between 250 & 300 words are recommended.
  • After you post, you can leave positive and encouraging comments for others who have posted their fresh, hot-off-the-press writing in the daily thread.

It's that easy! And that fun!
